in that direction. he is trying to do a personal appeal. here is mitt romney trying. >> romney: president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families, the difference is my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off of welfare and get a better job. >> cenk: problem number 2 if you have to start your ad by talking about how great your opponent is, you are in trouble. >> i'm not a witch. i'm nothing you have heard. i'm you. i'll go to washington, and do what you would do. i'm christine o'donnell, and i approve this message. >> cenk: on-camera ads are really dicey. what is point number 3? when you are at the bottom of the barrel, how do you go below the bottom of the barrel? you go to implied and obvious racism. watch this. >> let me tell you what the big problem with this president is in my opinion. he is absolutely lazy, and detached from his job. >> cenk: okay. lazy black guy. now if it's just sununu, you might say it's just sunu

high on obama. really low on romney when they should be the other way around. obama is not as good as people think he is. >> romney won almost every debate in the season. he's been preparing for these debates since june. he's going to do well. they're both good debaters. they're both smart men. >> jennifer: thank you for coming inside "the war room" talking about debate strategy, mark and donnie. coming up next, presidential candidates can hire big media firms to help with their ads but congressional candidates get brett ehrlich. >> coming up, the three congressional ads you have to see! wait, you don't have to see them but it would make my day. don't go away. connect with "the war room" jennifer granholm. >>it's a call to arms. make your voice heard. >> jennifer: with so much focus on the presidential race it can be difficult for congressional candidates to cut through the clutter. lec luckily brett ehrlich is here to help them sharpen the most crucial weapon in the fight for recognition, the campaign ad.
